Back at the end of the summer I did a simple project that adds a bit of interest to the inside of a CV hopper car. I had found a trail of fine cinders in the CASO yard in St. Thomas during a visit to the museum which I scooped up into a Tim Horton's cup.
Once home I screened the larger pieces out. It was then ready for any use on the layout. I added some to my hopper first. Some maybe placed near the engine house shortly...George Dutka
|Dab a bit of white glue in the bottom of the hopper bays. One side is completed.
|The fine cinders are seen in the bowl that is dropped into the glue. I then just turned the hopper over so the excess falls back into the bowl.
